    Hello,

    I have just registered a .ro domain. It is not linked to anything yet and it is purely the ownership of the domain that is registered. The only thing I can setup are nameservers for the domain. Everything else has to be managed through a hoster/provider. Can I get this working with wordpress.com and if so, how?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is sjogro.wordpress.com.

    1) Set up a blog on WordPress.COM – name is not too important if you are going to map it.

    2) A zone record must be added for your registered domain name (the .ro one not the WordPress.COM one)

    3) Map your domain name to your WordPress.COM blog: http://en.support.wordpress.com/domain-mapping/map-existing-domain/

    Same Rules Apply – The Domain Mapping Upgrade does not enable the permission to use advertising, any kind of prohibited code, or upload additional themes or plugins. With the upgrade, your blog will still be hosted here at WordPress.com, which means that you will not have FTP access to your files and you will still be required abide by our Terms of Service.
